    BigStevie,

    With hand scratching 19 on the bottom and the machining 8 over the tank: 1930s Aida No 214N
    I think 1938 or 1939 :-k

    Thank for your interest.

    Regards,
    Titoo.

    @Titoo
    19 is January 1939
    The 8 on the tank has only roughly something to do with age. Almost all tanks from Petromax and Aida from1935 to 1940 had these 8 on top.
    I think a part or control number.

    Regards Reinhard

    Beautiful setup.
    I don't have any of the early(original) Aidas. I mean those produced by Hirschhorn before they merged into or acquired by the Graetz or E+H company.

    Looks good and appears to run very well. A good restore, and well done.

    You need some luck to find pristine lanterns that would be made before ww2.
    And for the record : any pristine old lantern that is.
    They where sold and bought to be used.
